The South Atlantic International Submarine Cable System (SAIL) development team has completed the offshore installation of the 6,000km transatlantic submarine cable system. This marks an important milestone: the two continents, Africa and the Americas, are the first to connect with their respective landing stations in the southern hemisphere, namely Kribby in Cameroon and Fortaleza in Brazil.
According to the introduction, the SAIL submarine cable system has a 25-year service life, designed to be fast and direct, and will use 100G transmission technology to provide 32Tbps design capacity through a four-fiber pair configuration.filling compound for optical fiber loose tube
The SAIL system is jointly invested by China Unicom through its wholly-owned subsidiary China Unicom do Brasil Telecomunicacoes and Cameron Telecom Camtel. The entire project was built by Huawei Ocean.polyester water blocking yarn
“With the rapid development of global infrastructure and the dramatic growth of global Internet traffic, Africa and Latin America are becoming strategic emerging markets for the global telecommunications industry,” the company said. “The construction of SAIL meets the bandwidth needs of emerging markets, and through the various paths between Africa and North America, Europe and South America, new paths have been opened. Through the SAIL system, countries in these regions, especially the southern hemisphere countries, will be more closely linked and more conducive to promote the region development ."aluminum overhead conductor grease
As an important infrastructure investment, the SAIL submarine cable system will have a positive impact on the Southern Hemisphere communications market. It will allow direct connections between BRICS countries, namely Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa. This will enhance the growth of communication needs and drive rapid expansion in these areas.PE pellets
